If any of you is in the US also check Micro Center. they do get the gen 8 but low stocks....just got one in Dallas,Tx

I see there's a 101 16GB in Orange County/Tusting in CA. And a A70 8gb version in Denver/Colorado.

Taxes apply but you do not pay for shipping and can pick it in 18 minutes.


How'd you find it on their website? When I search for Archos, I don't see any gen8 tablets listed. I'm in Dallas too and would drive over today if they have one in stock!


Hey I purchased online the last one in Dallas,TX. But still have to pick it up. I may well change my mind and go with the G-tablet. Still deciding. I will pm you if that the case today. check your PMs. When searching online...if you chose store location does not have any it won't show up at all. Sometimes it does but will show out of stock. If you choose the CA/Tustin or Deven store you will them as you change store they will disappear. A month ago they had them available again in Dallas and houston.
I return my A101 for faulty speaker. Trying to replace it. I sold my A70 since I want the big screez size. Now I have to decide today if I go for the G-tablet or A101 I've reserved. I like Archos better but the 256Mb bothers me.

Just came from there. They could not locate the one I reserved online. I bet they sold it to somebody before I got there or before they went to reserve it. Or the inventory was incorrect. They said that happens sometimes when they have low stock. Bummmer. Now I'm going with Amazon.com G-tablet to see if I like it. I already know how the archos are.

i called erwin computers and they stated i will be shipped mine this friday as they are slated to get 25 units in and i am number 16 on the list of back orders. Looks like most places are so far behind on back orders that you will need to order and then wait for the back order to be supplied. but i cant wait to get it and my tuff-luv case gets here on thursday as well.

Latest update from Scott. See below. I know he has told this to a lot of people so we will see.

Scott said "I totally understand your frustration. I spoke with Archos North America CEO and was told more are coming this week. I am putting your unit on priority so you get from this next batch. Thanks so much for your patience.

Just a follow up to my previous post, the CDW Rep said that his date upgraded from April to this past Friday, the 21st. Friday happened to be the day that I got confirmation that my order shipped from Tiger Direct. The product is still not on their website however they were supposed to receive 1000pcs, and I was told that they are not all accounted for. If you want one of these, call Tiger Direct and ask for part number: A685-0094 you could get lucky and they can place the order before it gets onto the website.

Good luck!

I called both CDW and TigerDirect, no dice for either one.

If someone finds they hit the system, let us know!

The door was closed first thing this morning and opened for only a few hours late morning. Even though I had notify me, I didn't receive any notification. I randomly went on Archos.com site late this morning and I was amazed you could by either 101 pad. I thought I was dreaming but I tried to order and let me. I called Archos 1-866 number and verified my order went through and they said yes. The 8GB sold old very early and the 16GB was open for just a few hours. Keep checking with Archos.com and I hope they will get another shipment and allow all to buy.
I think not having enough distribution is crazy and I'm still not satisified mine will really come even though I received a e-mail notification stating it did. Strange company.

I have no idea, I just put it in the cart and that was what popped up. I just got lucky, I guess. It could have something to do with the 8GB one being sold out when I nabbed the 16

Got the shipping confirmation and tracking number, one day after ordering the 101-16. So far, good experience with Archos overall (other than super limited availability)...will keep hunting and posting if I get any email alerts. Guess I hit the window right on Monday...

I also ordered my 101 on Monday but nothing except for e-mail receipt for the purchase. Should I be worried?

I also received confirmation and a tracking number from archos.com for the order placed on Monday. The message went directly into spam, so I didn't see it right away.
